OREGON ELECTRIC O GAUGERS
Statement of Purpose
The Oregon Electric O Gaugers is an Oregon Limited Partnership (LLC) interested in promoting the hobby of O gauge Model Railroading.
This organization maintains a portable layout of varying sizes that can be operated at numerous locations. By operating the O gauge trains and accessories at locations like schools, retirement homes, libraries, museums and model train shows we demonstrate to others the fun and entertainment that O gauge trains provide.
Current members come from Albany, Corvallis, Eugene, Springfield, Monmouth, Salem and Tangent.
Annual dues (currently $30 but can change each year) are necessary to equip and maintain the layout in addition to liability insurance and State of Oregon organizational costs. There is a one time initiation fee of $50.00 for all new members. (This includes the first year membership, name tag and club shirt.)
We also have a Junior membership. A youth
must be 8 years or older and the cost is $5.00 All Junior members must
have a parent or guardian who is also a full member and that would include the
initiation fee plus one year’s dues. The adult sponsor must be in
attendance with the Junior member at all Club functions
It is not necessary to have a layout of your own, or to have background in preparing or maintaining a layout as a requirement to join our club. We have members who operate the modern command control engines, others who operate conventional O gauge trains (Lionel, MTH, Atlas, K-line, Marx and American Flyer); and still others who operate the prewar O gauge trains.
Ask us about a membership application if you are interested in joining the Oregon Electric O Gaugers and any questions you might have.
